The ROI of Blogging
What good is a blog? It can be a low-cost, global marketing machine, a community polling tool and a motivator for your organization's stake-holders - or it can be an ill-advised experiment that runs out of steam and does more harm than good. Let's have an accessible but challenging discussion about how to make it the former instead of the latter; blogging can be your window into a dynamic and powerful new world.
